Default Send text message to group of users ?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,
How can I create a group of users so that when I want to contact all those people at once with a mass message I just have to select the group type the message and it will send to all those people ?
Is it a standard feature or is there a software available that allows that ?
Thank you

Address book... New group. From there start adding members.

Then you can SMS to a group.

Pretty easy.

I believe it is correct that for a group, you must add the person as an e-mail address, i.e., you cannot simply add a cell phone number to a group for SMS purposes. Therefore you must use the subscriber's provider address rather than just a simple cellphone number.

And if you don't know the recipient's service provider, you can use [email address], which converts to the providers address and sends the message.
